Would you like to subscribe, or donate to my blog?
It makes all the difference in my ability to provide the time and research that good stories demand.
I've made my living as a writer, editor, educator, and journalist for the past 30 years. At first, newspapers, magazines, and books were my mainstay, but the Internet has changed all that. I'm read by millions more readers on the Web, yet most people are accustomed to getting Internet "content" for free, as if it was created by fairies who lived on pixie dust.
I always wanted to live on pixie dust, but it's harder than it looks!
If you enjoyed, laughed, cried, been informed, outraged, or thrilled by something I've written in this blog, please consider donating the equivalent of the price of a magazine, or taking me out for a cup of coffee. Without my paid subscribers and donations, I'm nothing!
Let me describe your choices:
- You want to sign up for a monthly $5 subscription—
Thank you so much...
Use my Paypal button, and you'll have $5 a month deducted from either your checking account, or your credit card:
This is my favorite way, because it's steady income for the blog, and it's so convenient. After you subscribe, email me personally with your snail mail address, and I'll send you one of my latest books or videos.
- You want to subscribe to my blog one time a year, with one annual bill—
Fine with me! It's $60 per annum. Click here:
- You live in some wonderful place outside the U.S. and hope that I can ship swag to you—
International shipping costs and predatory customs agents have ruined attempts I've made to ship my swag out of the country.
What I can do, is send your thank-you gift to any friend of yours in the U.S. who will hold it, or transport it, for you.
When I offer an e-book gift to my subscribers, I'm happy to send you the digital file! That always works. I have so many supporters from around the world, I want to include you anytime I can.
One last thing: Never send me a check or money order from overseas. The U.S. Banks charge such a high fee to deposit it, they end up taking nearly all your money. Paypal works great, however, for international subscribers— no unsightly bank charges.
- You prefer not to use credit cards—
if you're a member of Paypal, you can use their easy service to subscribe to my blog monthly, and they will send funds direct from your bank account.
- You prefer not to use direct withdrawls from your banking account—
You can use a major credit card on Paypal to subscribe monthly, without submitting any account info.
Thank you for supporting this journal, and being part of our community, any way you choose. I love to see you here!
